DHHS/NIH: Uncovering the Causes, Contexts & Consequences of Elder Mistreatment

Deadline: 20 October 2017

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), National Institutes of Health (NIH) is seeking applications for its program “Uncovering the Causes, Contexts, and Consequences of Elder Mistreatment”.

The purpose of this program is to seek applications proposing research that can lead to advancements in the understanding of elder mistreatment (emotional abuse, physical abuse, and sexual abuse; financial exploitation; abandonment; and neglect) and lay the foundation for the future design of mechanistically focused interventions for individuals at risk for mistreating elders, for promoting recovery and resilience in the maltreated and their families, and for preventing re-perpetration for those who have inflicted harm.

All applications should propose evidence-based strategies for addressing ethical challenges surrounding informed consent and study design in the research proposed, and to employ, when possible, best practices established in the fields of child abuse and neglect and/or intimate partner violence.

Priority Areas

  • Development of new and innovative tools and methods for the screening and detection of elder mistreatment.
  • Identification of modifiable risk factors for elder mistreatment and modifiable protective factors, with potential to prevent maltreatment and/or enable individuals who have been mistreated and those who have mistreated others to overcome adversity and thrive.
